I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

My best friend growing up was a terrier named Sacanni. When there is a stray dog around I'm often the one called to round them up. I'm lucky to live with a dog and even a cat that thinks he is one (comes when called).

Dog Walking in Lakewood

Lakewood is the place to play for wagging dogs and their owners! Pets in this town don’t have to wait when they have a splinter or a sniffle. Lakewood houses four separate vet clinics and animal hospitals within the city borders, and stepping outside leads to dozens more opportunities. Lakewood pets stay happy and healthy!

Head to Lakewood’s Bolivar Park for a some pawtastic outdoor adventure. This park features recently renovated playground equipment and facilities for an easy walk around the park. If your dog likes to take it easy, this is the park to go to for lots of fresh air and people-watching, but not too vigorous a hiking experience.

After your day's adventure, treat yourself to a meal at Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, where ingredients are made fresh daily! Enjoy classic Mexican fare at dog-friendly outdoor tables with lots of opportunities for people watching and fun. If you prefer Italian, Eastside Mario’s offers classic Italian dishes on a patio perfect for pooches.

Don’t worry about where you’re going to stay tonight. Lakewood has your hotel needs covered with a La Quinta Inn on the outskirts of the town. For a small pet fee, your best friend can join you in a comfortable room and snooze the night away so when tomorrow dawns, you’ll both be ready to explore!

Rubio’s Coastal Grill combines fresh seafood with the flavors of Mexico. If you prefer something more casual, sit outdoors at George’s Greek Cafe for mediterranean marvels served with bowls of water for your pup’s enjoyment.

Davenport Park in Lakewood is actually home to Biscailuz Park (as the park after which the neighborhood is named is actually across the border in Long Beach). Biscailuz Park is a simple place to go when you need fresh air, exercise, and you don’t want to have to travel far to get them. The park’s main attraction are the several sports fields it contains. A looping walking path provides a great way to exercise without interrupting a game. There are also some benches, drinking fountains, and facilities. The park is a simple place, but it’s a welcome break from the city on all sides as it rides the line between Long Beach and Lakewood.

Bloomfield Park in Hawaiian Gardens is a great, mutli-use park that you should visit with your dog. Pups love the expansive greenness of the area. The park is mostly used for sports or walking, so you won’t run into too much playground equipment or workout zones here. It’s perfect for nearby residents who have just a little time to walk their dog on their lunch break, or before work in the morning. It’s a great place to visit if you have a high energy dog, but don’t have the time to go for a hike right now. The people will be mentally stimulating, and a few brisk loops of this park will even leave them tired out!

Candleverde Park in Lakewood’s Mayfair neighborhood is a hidden treasure of the area. Candleverde Park is mainly used by locals, often residents of the neighborhood. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in convenience and the beauty of just being in nature. Leash your dog up and head into this small park to enjoy the looped walking path and green fields. Your pup can roll in the grass or trot down the paved walking paths around this neighborhood park. You don’t have to worry about  crowds here, making it the perfect stop for shy dogs and busy owners.

Some dogs just love off leash play more than anything in the world. If your mutt won’t be satisfied until she’s frolicked in the fields, head to Lakewood Village and Home Run Dog Park. This park is everything your dog needs to have a good time. The area is fully fenced for some paawtastic off leash play. There is water available, so your pup won’t have to suffer from thirst while running her heart out. There are also separate areas for large and small dogs. This gives both types plenty of the space they need to play! Home Run Dog Park couldn’t be more aptly named--it’s a major score!
